J-Fest 2016

The news about the news industry keeps on going from bad to worse, with closures and layoffs being announced every few months. But, across Alberta and rest of Canada, journalists are still working hard to hold power to account and inform the public.That’s why the Canadian Association of Journalists launched J-Fest two-years ago. It’s an opportunity for reporters give their readers, listeners and viewers the inside scoop on the stories they’ve covered – and talk about how the news media can be made better.This year’s speakers will include: CBC News investigative reporters Charles Rusnell and Jennie Russell, who will talk about exposing political wrongdoing in Alberta; Documentary filmaker Brandy Yanchyk, who will share her stories about uncovering racism against immigrants; and Award-winning journalist Omar Mouallem, the editor of the quarterly community magazine The Yards, who will discuss covering downtown development in Edmonton.
